'Visit Shropshire'

'Visit Shropshire'

In response to the Government's five point plan, the board of Shropshire Tourism along with several invited guests from the tourism associations, unanimously agreed that the best way forward is to bring together representatives from the main county and district tourism organisations on a regular basis to identify and discuss issues that affect tourism in the destination, set strategy and direction, provide a consultative and coordination role across the sector and be a real voice for our tourism industry.

To that end a new organisation, Visit Shropshire, will be formed, and invitations have been sent to a range of district and county wide organisations to nominate their representative to attend the inaugural meeting in November.

Invited organisations include:

  • North Shropshire Tourism Ltd
  • Bridgnorth & District Tourist Association Ltd
  • Shropshire Hills Tourism Ltd
  • Oswestry Borderlands Tourism Ltd
  • Shrewsbury Tourism Association Ltd
  • Shrewsbury Business Improvement District
  • Shropshire Business Board
  • Shropshire Business Partnership
  • Shropshire Star Attractions
  • Shropshire Gold
  • Shropshire County Hotels Ltd
  • Shropshire Tourism Ltd
  • Shropshire Chamber of Commerce
  • The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership
  • Shropshire Council Portfolio Holder/Tourism Officer
  • Telford & Wrekin Council Portfolio Holder/Tourism Officer

We are in the process of taking this forward and will be sure to update all members via future e-newsletters as to the outputs of this new independent group as it strives towards the DCMS objectives. The inaugural meeting of Visit Shropshire has been arranged for Thursday the 5th November 2015.
